We have such a warm October it sometimes feels Summer is back. Well, Indian Summer at least. The days for walks in the park ❤️😄 . Check the discount code in my bio if you like this Mother Goose painting
Evalyn Louisa, I never want to forget the way we worked together to have the best labor and delivery, the way you felt coming out me, the warmth and your smell, how simultaneously big and small you felt, how your chubby arms/shoulders were the first thing I noticed, looking at you to see you were a girl and how my heart exploded, how I couldn’t stop looking at you and forgot to start nursing you and put you to my chest right away, the birth high I rode for weeks, the way you didn’t stop nursing for 7 hours, your flaky feet and hands, your grunts, the way you can smack your lips, the way you smile in your sleep, that it was Vera who nicknamed you “sweet potayta”, the way your ears move when you smile, your ability to fall asleep on me without being rocked or standing, your love for skin to skin, the way you wiggle when I tickle your sides, your cute morning toots when you stretch, the smell of your breath, seeing you get so happy when you see Vera and Calvin, the way you hit yourself in the face because you get too excited and can’t control your arms, the way I can lay you over my tummy in the middle of the night and you stop fussing, how you have always been so happy during diaper changes (even when you were brand new), the way your hair stands up and you get goosebumps when I tickle your legs, how much you use your eye brows in all your facial expressions, your adorable coughs when my milk lets down too quick, the way you nurse in your sleep, how your eyes disappear when you smile, the way you go from crying to so happy once I prop you up on my pillow and say good morning when you wake up, our days spent on the couch together, and just the overall joy I’ve felt these passed almost 3 months. I love you, darling girl.

Garage door background for the win! Hey, do what you gotta do, right?! 😆 -- Sometimes it's fun to put the pen down, step away from the words and get a little creative in a different way. And knowing FULL well my neighbors across the street were watching me just makes this all the funnier. Here’s to laughing at the awkward stuff, friends! ✨
